This sweet little vignette is not of my own creation. In fact, I was surprised to even come across something so clever and vibrant in, of all places, a kitchen cabinet and fixture supply company! But there it was, amidst door fronts, drawer pulls, and hinges. I spotted it just as we were hastily leaving in order to get home ahead of the snow. Had I a bit more time I'd have straightened out the flatware and photographed it from a variety of angles, not to mention turned the plates upside down to make note of the manufacturer.
What did impress me about this little layout is that the "placemats" are actually napkins. Folded into triangles, the folded side flush against the runner, they make for a unique and lovely presentation. In all my years of setting tables this had never occurred to me, but it's an idea I now love and look forward to putting to use at first opportunity (of course I will need to buy a runner to complement the napkins I currently have or heck, maybe a NEW runner and a NEW set of napkins is in order).
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. If you happen to know the manufacturer of either the linens or the dinnerware, please let me know. Not that I'd purchase an EIGHTH set of dinnerware, ahem, but I am curious. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it!)
